I'm sorry I changed my brake booster I do believe I may have gotten some brake fluid on the brakes

it might be your rotor that needs to change it happened to me before. Get a mechanic check it out for u.


Can you feel the shimmy in the steering wheel when your are braking ? If so it is the front rotors if not and feels like it is coming from rear it is the drums. When you replaced the drums did you clean them off with brake clean ? If not or did not clean good enough the grease they put on them to keep them from rusting will cause your problem. Remove brake drums and sand with Emory Cloth sand paper ( fine ) and it is also possible that one of the rear wheel cylinders is leaking brake fluid getting onto brake shoes.
